DROP View - Monitor That Matches Fit and Finish of DROP Mech Boards?
TLDR: DROP should make a high res monitor that matches the ALT/CTRL/SHIFT boards in design language + fit and finish. Just drop a good pre-existing panel in an aluminum enclosure with that signature LED acrylic strip and a controller board that doesn't lock you into the Apple ecosystem to control more than 4k. If LG can get $1500 for a crappy plastic monitor, and Apple wants $6k for 6k, there has to be some in between market.
More wishful thinking:
Has anyone else out there been looking for external monitors for WFH and realized that there are essentially three camps, and that you don't fall into any of them?
Camp 1: Crap you'd find in Office Depot. They probably don't list their resolution because their customer base probably doesn't know or care what that means unless they saw it in operation. Cheap, but not as cheap as they should be.
Camp 2: Gamer monitors. Seemingly prioritizing nothing but refresh rate with a resolution that is almost certainly at or below 1440p. Almost...

I may consider to start a group buy. Please leave your comments.

Composed by 150 keycaps, this kit is the starting point for everyone, and provides great coverage for many boards including Nemo, Uniqey’s C70, Leopold’s FC660 & FC980, TADA68, 96-key layouts, as well as winkeyless boards. All of them in both ANSI and UK ISO layouts. The Core kit already comes with 2.25U, and 1.75U SHIFT keys. One 7.00U and two 6.00U spacebars (one with a centered stem and the other one with an off-centered one) have also been included. Both scooped and...
So I'm going back and forth between using Drop's config utility and QMK Configurator. While it's great that Drop has toggles to select between underglow, backlight and both (something that qmk configurator lacks), they don't have key choices to change hue and saturation? Something that QMK has.
It's incredibly frustrating that a few extra key options for lighting couldn't be coded in.

When I try and install firmware to the alt using the mdloader, it just tells me that no port could be found. I've tried different cables, different USB ports, all with the same end result of it not working. I'm at my wits end and I don't really know what else I can do at this point, has anyone else had this issue and fixed it?
Hey all, hope you’re doing well. With this installment of Creator Spotlights, we have officially become a weekly serialization! If you’re a first time reader, this is where I scour the internet and find all sorts of mechanical keyboard content creators - video, written, or audio - and share them here with you. My hope is that you find interesting content while helping creators in the mechanical keyboard community grow!
Without further ado here is this weeks around up!
Why can’t I hold all these switches? With so many switches being released onto the market you’ll need to figure out which one is best for you. Our first community submission from @erickong is about theremingoat. This is a blog where Goat dives deep into particular switches. Their history, sound, feel, wobble, and anything else relevant. If you’re a fan of knowing every single detail about a switch, this is a blog to keep up with. It’s mind boggling that he has a...
